Printing from Adobe Illustrator (quality is terrible)
Posted on 2012-09-11
I'm trying to print some small labels about 0.625" in diameter from Adobe Illustrator CS. I'm using a logo that was made with Illustrator and looks excellent on screen.
The issue I'm having is that, when I print it looks terrible. The lines are jagged and it's pretty blurry.
I'm assuming that I must be missing something.
I'm trying to print from a Dell 2130cn Color Laser Printer. The specs say that it can do up to 600DPI. I know it can print much sharper than what I'm seeing... I just do know what settings to adjust to get it to print correctly from Illustrator.
I've also tried exporting to a PDF but still, the quality is pretty poor.
